Welcome to

This site includes pages on: traditional boat building, published books and on family history.

Boats and Boat-building

This section has blogs on boats we have built and on the techniques used to craft and restore traditional boats and ships. This page has plans for the 15-foot, 4.6 metre, Irish gandelow featured in Wooden Boat Magazine no 260. 

Beautement Books

Beautement Books started publishing in 2014. Their second book is a detailed guide (with plans) for building a traditional wooden fishing boat - the river Shannon gandelow. You can buy the book on the Shop Now page.

Our books, both those already published and others being written, are listed on the Events page.

Family History

This section provides information about our unusual family name, its origins and history.
